Made this today so I could mount the H50 rad where the second top 200mm fan is:

I can tell you with this setup, using 2x 1150RPM GentleTyphoons in Push/Pull my idle dropped by 7 degrees.

Also, with the 120mm side fan added blowing cool air onto the GPU + chipset, my system is running much cooler.

Where was your previous H50 location? And where'd you get the wrap by chance (3M?)?

Very good idea. Will do that too. This way the H50 always has fresh air despite what your GPU is doing.

I've tried it in this config (rear intake):

as well as this config (front intake):

and this current setup yields the best temps by far, but that could also be because I switched to 2 GT's.

I got the wrap locally from a guy I knew who did automotive wraps... you can find them online really easily though, check ebay or craigslist or google.

I also wrapped my HIS Radeon HD5850 smile.gif

Oh btw, I did have to shave down one of the mesh-securing pegs to be able to fit the 120mm fan in that position.

I did the top mount with pics back on page 10 or 11 I believe but I do like your mounting bracket could you pm me or post a short materials list and steps on how you did it i would be very interested as mine is only zipped tied.

It's really simple, no real material list either.

I used foam board for the prototypes, of course it's best to use a piece of aluminum or something if you have access to a machine shop. Make sure whatever use is as thin as possible while maintaining rigidity.

Measure out the holes (I used the fan filters) onto your material and draw out where the holes need to be drilled. Determine what shape to use, for the inside area as well.

I used squares for my first design (two pages ago) and I made a revision to the inside shape as it was restricting air flow, used an octagon type shape after.

You can either paint your material or do a wrap like I did.

SQUARE:

OCTAGON:

If you don't thread your holes, then you'd need a short bolt and nut (not too big!) to mount the bracket onto the case.

After you've mounted that, the rest is pretty straight forward... figure out what fan configuration you want and go from there. Keep in mind you might need to shave down one of the pegs on the top cover if you want to mount a fan on the outside like I have documented a few posts above.

I'll post them. Everything is arriving within these weeks.

I also had the window modded and it looks simply amazing, but I'm having problems with it so pics of the mod will have to wait a bit.

Only slim 240 rads can be put on top. No 360 - or at least, not without modding I guess..

Woot! I just joined Overclock.net because of this thread.

I just got my red Phantom last week and am still in the process of tweaking the cooling. I bought the 200mm to go on the side, but alas my cooler is too big for it to fit, so I installed it in the open top slot exhausting. I installed the front 140mm fan.

So far I've a few thoughts:

Does the twin 120's on the lower side interfere with the front 140?

Which way should the CPU fan be directed? Towards the back exhaust fan, or top exhaust fan?

Wouldn't the front intake be better installed in the lower 3 5.25" bays and the door removed?

Move the side intake fans to the side 200mm location (saw a previous user did this) and one to pull in from bottom?
